I am having some major abdomen pain last night/today. Last week my doc put me on Entocort. I have been on Imuran for a while. The pain I am experiencing now is quite sharp and persistent. I am thinking of taking some tylenol to help it about a bit. Anyone have any other suggestions to help with pain?

Hot baths and showers. A heating pad for your tummy. Also finding a more comfortable position to sit/lay in could help. Taking it easy. I hope you feel better soon.

Laying down in a comfortable position + heating pad usually helps for me.

I'm the same with using a heating pad, they work wonders! I find that ginger peppermint tea helps as well.

Heat helps me too. I have one of those little pillows filled with some sort of grain or pasta????? Heated in the microwave it gets hotter, faster and it smells good too.

My worst pain came from pancreatitis believed to be caused by imuran. Doctors asked me time and time again how much alcohol I drink. They thought I was a "drinker" which is the most common cause of pancreatitis. Six pack lasted me about a month then. Now I don't drink at all in the hopes that I never have that pain again.
You ought to let your doc know if the pain is that bad.

I second, third and fourth agree that heat really helps. I am actually addicted to my microwaveable heating pads:)

They pain has for the most part subsided. I think I overdid it by jumping into the deep end of the SCD with lots of raw fruit and veg over the last few days. I am sticking to chicken soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the next couple of days, to give my gut a rest.
